Campus to commemorate those who died during 2011-12

Campus Memorial 2012

The campuswide memorial service will take place Thursday, Sept. 27, at the flagpole on the west side of California Hall.

The campus community will gather Thursday, Sept. 27, for UC Berkeley’s 11th annual memorial service to honor those of its own who passed away during the last year.

Members of the campus community — among them faculty and emeriti, students and staff — will be remembered and celebrated with music, poetry and a reading of the names of the deceased. All are welcome to join Chancellor Robert Birgeneau in attending the ceremony, which will be held from noon to 1 p.m. at the flagpole on the west side of California Hall.

The names of those to be honored at this year’s ceremony are listed below.

If a member of the campus community has been inadvertently omitted, please contact by Tuesday, Sept. 25.
